I hope your November is going well. I had the pleasure of reading Lake Season by Denise Hunter last week. I can’t wait to share my thoughts with you. But first, be sure to add it to your TBR pile.
About the Book
When their parents die in a tragic accident, Molly Bennett and her siblings pull together to fulfill their parents’ dream: turning their historic home back into an inn.
Adam Bradford (a.k.a. bestselling author Nathanial Grey) is a reclusive author with a bad case of writer’s block. Desperate for inspiration as his deadline approaches, he travels to a North Carolina lake town, the setting of his next novel. There he immediately meets his muse, a young innkeeper who fancies herself in love with his alter ego.
When Molly finds an old letter in the walls of her inn she embarks on a mission with Adam to find the star-crossed lovers and bring them the closure they deserve. But the guest she invites along has secrets of his own. Past and present collide as truths are revealed, and Molly and Adam will have to decide if love is worth trusting.
Y’all Ms. Hunter had from the prologue. Oh my heart ached to see what the Bennett siblings were going through. I
can’t imagine that type of loss and I immediately wanted to root for them. I’m so glad that they started with Molly.
She seems like an awesome person and one I’d be friends. I mean who wouldn’t want to be friends with another avid reader. But as much as I liked Molly, Adam is what made this a 5-star read for me.
I love a nerdy hero and Adam has that in spades. Plus he’s a bestselling author! I loved reading his pov as he navigated the waters and tried to come out of his shell when it came to Molly.
I was also surprised by the little historical thread. I admit I was more than nervous when I saw that because not every timeslip (and not sure this really counts as one) keeps my attention, but oh this thread may have made me shed a tear or two. And that’s all I’m saying about that.
Once I read the final page, I immediately added book 2 to my want-to-read list on Goodreads and now I’ll be waiting eagerly for it to release next summer. Oh and did I mention I binged this in one setting? My husband may have laughed at me walking around the house to do other things as I held my Kindle tightly. 🙂
